The Nordic Alliance for Communication & Management
Leveraging communication as a strategic driver of sustainable organizational performance and success in a changing world.
Organizations face increasing demands for contributing to solving societal and environmental problems. As a result, the way organizations communicate and engage with stakeholders is rapidly changing. Sustainable organizational performance and success is dependent not only on managers’ ability to understand how they relate to their organizations but also on their understanding of the impact of their personal communication along with that of their organization, both internally and externally. In this sense, management and communication are natural allies.
The Nordic Alliance for Communication & Management (#NORA) brings together leading communication executives with researchers in communication and management fields from Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Denmark to jointly identify emerging trends and topics, develop new research-based knowledge, and shape the debate in the Nordic countries.
